Many people worry about exercising in front of others and I think it is the responsibility of gym staff to make sure everyone feels welcome and comfortable when working out.
We all have our own capabilities and fitness goals and the only person you need to think about when you are exercising is you. While there are some gyms which are favoured by muscle-bound martial art specialists, most are less daunting for the uninitiated.
Drop by either of the Simply gym club for an introductory chat with one of the instructors and you will find a warm, non-judgmental welcome and a gym being used by people of all shapes and sizes, all ages and all abilities. Be brave. You have everything to gain.
